Wild Blue Yonder™

You'll be ridin' high over the saturated scent, bold new-fangled colors & camellia-likeform. The first lavender-toned rose to take the AARS award in over 20 years, clusters of ruffled ruby-red-purple blossoms give a great show of distinct lavender 'eyes'. Clean deep green leaves make this vigorous Grandiflora a mean bouquet machine for the garden. Deeper colors in cool temps. Gets better with establishment.
